Digital steering wheel, ABT body kit, and 700 horses are just some of this wagon’s accolades

The Audi RS6 Avant is a mighty fast wagon and we can’t get over it. It strikes the perfect balance of an SUV and a sedan. As practical and spacious as an SUV and comes with sedan-like driving dynamics. The RS6 Avant also happens to be a hot favorite with the tuners. While these renditions are generally pretty good, you have to customize it based on the stuff offered by that one particular tuner only.

However, here’s one example of a heavily customized RS6 Avant that comes with parts and accessories from various equipment manufacturers and we love it to bits. Nice, huh?

That’s One Unique RS6 Avant

The video of this crazy RS6 Avant was uploaded to Auditography’s YouTube channel by the owner. On the outside, the car is finished in a very light sky blue shade. It comes with a body kit from ABT Sportsline that includes a front lip spoiler finished in carbon fiber, a carbon-fiber roof spoiler, and 22-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. These low-profile tires measure 295/25 on all four corners. If you are familiar with ABT builds, you’ll realize that these are the same mods made to its RS6-R build.

On the inside, the highlight is a custom-made steering wheel from CarbonCartelco. The wheel comes with an LCD screen on it and also shows sweet shift lights. It is wrapped in Alcantara with blue stitching and has carbon fiber elements on it. Even the paddle shifters are made of carbon fiber. The rear passengers get their entertainment systems

It Makes Over 100 Horses More Than The Stock RS6

The standard Audi RS6 Avant comes with a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 engine under the hood that generates 591 horses and 590 pound-feet of torque.

The mill is also equipped with a 48-volt mild hybrid system. Power is sent to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. It takes 3.6 seconds to sprint to 60 mph, which is might impressive.

It’s Faster Than Many Porsche 911 Models

The owner went for an APR ECU tune-up. This has increased the power outputs to 700 horses and 700 pound-feet of torque. Courtesy of all the power and various goodies installed to complement it, the wagon takes just 2.91 seconds to sprint to 62 mph from a standstill. To put things into perspective, this is as quick as the new Porsche 911 Turbo cabriolet! It takes just 10.89 seconds to 124 mph from rest and has a top speed of 205 mph.

The wagon comes with a Sports Exhaust system as standard, the robust grunt of which can be adjusted using the Audi drive select system. However, this example features a stainless steel valved Catback exhaust system with 2.75-inch pipes.

The owner didn’t reveal the final cost of the wagon after all these mods, but we speculate it be as much as the cost of a new RS6 Avant; which, by the way, starts at around $109,000. What do you think of this sweet build? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
